ENERGY STAR Qualified Refrigerator Overview

  • ENERGY STAR

  • The government-backed program dedicated to helping consumers save money and protect the environment through superior energy efficiency. Look for the ENERGY STAR label on qualified refrigerators.

  • ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators:

  • Must be 20% more energy efficient than the minimum federal standard

  • Save more than $130 over the product lifetime, compared to a standard model

  • Offer energy efficiency without sacrificing performance or features

  • Save energy and help prevent climate change by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions caused by burning fossil fuels at power plants


Energy star qualified refrigerator criteria l.jpg
ENERGY STAR Qualified Refrigerator Criteria

Refrigerators earning the ENERGY STAR must be at least 20%more energy efficient than the minimum federal standard.


Saving energy saving money l.jpg

Did you know?

A new qualified refrigerator can save about $130 on electricity bills over its lifetime compared to a new standard model

If everyone purchasing a refrigerator in 2010 chooses an ENERGY STAR qualified model over a non-qualified model, together we would save more than $100 million a year on our energy bills

ENERGY STAR qualified products use less energy and cost less to operate resulting in:

Saving Energy = Saving Money


Saving energy helps protect the environment l.jpg

If everyone purchasing a refrigerator in 2010 chooses an ENERGY STAR qualified model, together we would reduce the greenhouse gas emissions equivalent to those from more than 120,000 cars

By using less energy, qualified refrigerators help prevent climate change by reducing the greenhouse gas emissions caused by burning fossil fuels at power plants

Saving Energy HelpsProtect the Environment


Why buy energy star l.jpg
Why Buy ENERGY STAR? an ENERGY STAR qualified model, together we would

Save energy without sacrificing quality or performance

ENERGY STAR qualified refrigerators offer high performance features such as:

High-efficiency compressors – use less energy, creating less heat when they are running, and are often quieter than regular compressors

Improved insulation – helps food stay cold and muffles refrigerator noise

More precise temperature and defrost mechanisms – help ensure food is kept at the optimum temperature

Wide Selection

Available with automatic ice-makers through-the-door ice and water dispensers

Also available with top, bottom, and side-by-side freezers


Refrigerators energy saving tips l.jpg
Refrigerators: an ENERGY STAR qualified model, together we would Energy Saving Tips

  • Recycle older or second refrigerators. Your second refrigerator costs a lot to operate. You can save from $300-$700 by not running your second refrigerator over the next 5 years. By unplugging your second refrigerator and properly recycling it, you can also prevent 5,500 to 20,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

    • [Insert customized information here about your recycling offerings]

  • Don’t heat your fridge. Position your refrigerator away from heat sources such as ovens and dishwashers. Heat sources make your fridge work harder to keep your food cold.

  • Give it space to breathe. Leave a space between the wall and the refrigerator to allow air to circulate – this keeps the coils cooler so your refrigerator doesn’t have to work as hard.

  • Load it up. A full refrigerator or freezer uses less energy than an empty or partially-loaded one.

  • Keep it clean. While cleaning your refrigerator on the inside is important, keeping it clean on the outside is important too: by cleaning the coils on the back of your refrigerator, you will save energy.

  • Don’t over cool. In addition to turning ice-cream into a spoon-bending block of ice, setting your fridge and freezer to “max cold” uses more energy and money.

  • It’s not a window. Minimize the time refrigerator doors are open.

  • Check that seal. Make sure the door seals are tight. If not, you could be losing cold air and using more energy.

“But the refrigerator I bought 20 years ago works just fine…”

  • Many consumers have no idea how much their older refrigerator is costing them. Help them understand the savings!

    • A refrigerator from the 1970s uses over 2,400 kilowatt hours a year, costing you over $250 a year on your electricity bills. Replace it with a model that has earned the ENERGY STAR and you can save over $200 a year while avoiding 3,000 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

    • A refrigerator from the 1980s uses over 1,480 kilowatt hours a year, costing you nearly $160 a year to run. Replace it with a model that has earned the ENERGY STAR and you can save over $100 a year while avoiding more than 1,600 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

    • A refrigerator made in 1992 uses over 1,020 kilowatt hours and costs you more than $100 a year to run. Replace it with a model that has earned the ENERGY STAR and you could save over $65 a year while avoiding nearly 940 pounds of greenhouse gas emissions.

  • Unplugging the second refrigerator saves.

    • About a quarter of U.S. households have a second refrigerator. Many of these are older, inefficient refrigerators that people have kept and moved to the garage or basement.
